that i thought people might really like. the first one is by scott berg called wilson. is a new biography of woodrow wilson. actually a very favorable and thoughtful volume. scott berg took 13 years of meticulous scholarship to write this book, and it shows. it's one of the most thoughtful, balanced biographies of this very complex figure in american history to lead his own contradictions. what i think it gives you some really new insights and new appreciation for woodrow wilson, a very pivotal figure in history of american presidents. just a delightful read and i recommend it to come one of the best biographies i've read in a long time. another book is by professor at university of virginia, a former neighbor of mine, and wonderful scholar. should read the book called appomattox. and in this book she talks about how much of the problems that flow in reconstruction and subsequently the reinstitution of jim crow and segregation in the south flows in a sense from the perception of all that was given from appomattox. certainly robert e. lee took a finish of that when he was indicted for war
